Welcome to Harmony...
...a tiny town hidden beneath the staple in the Rand McNally Atlas. In these delightful stories, Sam Gardner, pastor of Harmony Friends Meeting, describes in a warm, down-home style the moving and humorous adventures of his first year leading his hometown church. Along with Sam, partake of the Friendly Women's Circle's Chicken Noodle Dinner (their motto: "Meeting All Your Noodle Needs Since 1964"). Experience small-town revival and the antics of Billy Bundle, the "World's Shortest Evangelist". Drop in at the Coffee Cup, where a painting of The Last Supper overlooks the salad bar...
If you're tired of today's fast-paced, complication-choked world, come home to Harmony, where the characters are quaint yet colorful, the mishaps familiar yet funny, and the moral of the story is always heartwarming and faith-inspiring.
I'm reading this book for a challenge, Christy Awards Challenge. I enjoy inspirational books, I'm a huge fan of Jan Karon's Home in Mitford. And I'm hoping that this series will be as good as Karon's.
Just like the blurb said it's a heartwarming and funny book, but I felt like something was missing. I'm not sure what... I felt that author only scratched the surface of the characters. Do you know what I mean? I wanted more information. I can definitely say that it has sparked my curiosity and I'm looking forward to the other books of the series.
Overall I think it looks promising.
